    In the menu bar select Tools > Option > Edit/Search (Tab) > Select the
    default search option there

    You need to close the MDB and Reopen after the changes

    Good Luck

    Check out Application.SetOption. Below are some I use in A97 databases.

    'Set some database defaults found in Tools, Options
    ' Put in the Open event of the startup form
    ' Set Default Locking to Edited Record
    Application.SetOption "Default Record Locking", 2
    ' Set Default Open Mode for Databases to Shared
    Application.SetOption "Default Open Mode for Databases", 0
    ' Set Default Find/Replace Behavior to Start of Field Search
    Application.SetOption "Default Find/Replace Behavior", 2

    In the case of "Application.SetOption "Default Record Locking", 2" Default
    Record Locking has three choices and the one I want is the third so, of
    course, I put in 2 for the arguement. That's because it starts numbering at 0
    instead of 1.

    Put the above code in the Open Event of your opening form. One other strange
    thing is that the database may need to be opened and closed twice on the
    user's computer for the change to take effect. The first time the database
    opens, it makes the changes. The second time the changes are in effect.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
